Training cannot make a person anything that they don't have the potential for; likewise, lack of training will not diminish a person's potential. Based on that principle, training can make a person better at what what they already were. Anyone can learn the keys of a piano, but not everyone can be a pianist.
If you have the potential and the training, the training will rise to the occasion; if you have only the training, well, you'll probably "only be half as good as your training." I've seen this with Karate students; some of the best, cleanest techniques in the Dojo/Katas are not from the most effective fighters whereas the better fighters often don't have the "best" moves because they know what works best for them.
I think it all boils down to the INDIVIDUAL. Some people perform really well under pressure, no matter their level of training. Some people do NOT perform well under pressure, no matter their level of training.
Which are you? Only way to really find out is to place or find yourself in a high pressure situation where you need to perform NOW.
There have been some major advances made in the the study of Training/learning, basically your performance in reality is dependant on the hard wired sub-concious 'model' you have of what to do, that model comes from your training so if it does not correspond to reality then performance will of course not be as expected.
If we are talking about CQB then we need to access the 'state' we need in a real fight and anchor our motor skills to that.
Not everyone has as strong of a survival instinct as you might think. Most criminals (our most likely opponents) DO, however. Which is why WE train as hard as we can. I'm not worried about the sheep that's going to soil themselves, roll over, give up, and die (and there are many of them). They're not a threat to me. The hardened ex-con is, however.

Sadly in soccer you see stuff like this, people who are tribalists and don't just love the game for it's great skill and artistry and just see it as one army facing another.but true sportsmen see it that way and will cheer for great skill such as in the late george best
How does tribalism take hold?
Tribalism is an evolutionary trait that we formed to keep people of like genetic material safe from threats posed by those of dis-similar genetic material. Over the years, we learned how to manipulate it through symbols, stories, and central powerful leaders in order to expand our "tribes" and make them more cohesive and powerful. Examples of this are Nationalism, Religion, Team Sports, and even brand affiliation.
For the media and public opinion, however, racism among football fans is a serious problem, and often blamed for outbreaks of violence, particularly at international matches.
In Britain, racist chanting at matches still occurs, but at nowhere near the levels it reached in the 1970s and 80s, when black players were often greeted with monkey-noises and bananas. The recent decline may be due in part to campaigns designed to combat racism, such as the 'Let's Kick Racism Out of Football' campaign.
Elsewhere in Europe – particularly in Germany and Austria – there are some indications that the problem may be more persistent. In one survey, 20% of German fans reported sympathies with the neo-Nazi movement. In many cases, however, Nazi symbols and slogans may be used purely to shock and provoke, without any underlying political conviction.
